After the success of the sold out Winter Soirée, where the champagne flowed and jazz legend himself James Morrison made a special appearance, we're back again to welcome in Spring with style. With a bar twice as big and the hottest jazz in town we'll kick up our heels and Charleston later into the night.

Astor Productions cordially invites you to The Gatsby Spring Soirée, a ritzy night of hot jazz and chilled champagne. All welcome, from Flappers to Fly Boys, Dames to Dapper Dans and everyone in between.

Hosted by the suave David Howell who'll dazzle you with his vintage suits and smooth charms, and featuring the finest in Melbourne big band music, classic cars, a vintage fashion show, a best dressed competition and swing dancing performances The Gatsby Spring Soirée is an extravaganza not to be missed!

Welcoming you into the soirée will be the New Orleans Pelican Brass Band, led by Barry Wratten who for 16 years resided in New Orleans leading jazz bands and playing alongside pioneers of New Orleans music. The New Orleans Pelican Brass Band are popular at all the major jazz festivals, and at The Gatsby Spring Soirée they'll have you dancing before you even set foot in the venue!

In an exciting new project, Melbourne bandleader Michael McQuaid brings you an eclectic mix of the sweetest 1920s pop songs and gut-bucket blues. Mike's Retro Five also features period vocals from the charming Sandra Talty. Speakeasy, here we come.

Keeping that dancefloor hot late into the night will be Andrew Nolte and His Orchestra. With a dedication to accuracy and musical brilliance being a primary focus, these boys make every attempt at breathing new life into what was some of the most exuberant and sophisticated music of the 20th Century. Each musician under the leadership of Mr Nolte is an exponent of jazz in their own right. Authenticity is their middle name, and after witnessing one performance, you will wish it were still 1926!

So join us for a drink, experience the oppulence and grandeur of Malvern Town Hall and help us welcome in Spring with style with the hottest jazz Melbourne has to offer.

Dress to impress, swanky and spiffy. Think The Great Gatsby and Boardwalk Empire. There's a best dressed competition afterall!
